It's now nearly six years since we last saw a film from director Todd Field. And you would think that there wouldn't be such a gap from the filmmaker, given that his directorial debut was the Oscar-nominated "In The Bedroom" (which saw him pick up nods for Best Picture, Director and Screenplay), and his follow-up was the equally acclaimed "Little Children" (which got three Oscar noms, including another for Screenplay for Field).

Eight Academy Award nominations after your first two feature films ain’t too shabby. For an encore? Crickets. Last year we asked: where in the world is writer/director Todd Field? The actor turned filmmaker has had several projects gestating for several years, but he hasn't made a feature since 2006’s well-received "Little Children," which added three Oscar nominations to his total.

As we mentioned in a Where Have They Been? feature we ran a few months ago, dramatist Todd Field has been missing from the world of cinema since 2006's sardonic suburban drama, "Little Children."
